NAVY LT CMDR PLEADS GUILTY IN FAT LEONARD
© 2016 MilitaryCorruption.com
He called them "cheesecake" and "bodyguards" in cryptic e-mails to executives of now-disgraced Glenn Marine Asia in Singapore. But what the super-horny Naval officer meant was he wanted to be set-up with hookers in various Asian ports-of-call.
LT CMDR Gentry Debord (see Related Stories below) has pleaded guilty to a federal charge of conspiracy to commit bribery. The supply and service specialist is one of 11 current and former Naval officers who've been caught up in one of the worst scandals to ever hit the U.S. Navy.
The plea deal, which was worked out with federal prosecutors, means Debord will likely escape the maximum punishment for his crimes - five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. But his military career is over, and he will have to do some hard time for taking bribes from the infamous "Fat Leonard" who ran Glenn Marine with an iron fist.
He has admitted to the FBI he bribed U.S. Navy officers with money, prostitutes, luxury hotel room stays and other gifts in exchange for inside information on ship movements to various ports. It is estimated Fat Leonard hauled down nearly $500 million over the last eight years for food, water and other replenishment services while warships were docked at port locations he controlled.
LIKED SEVERAL HOOKERS AT SAME TIME
"Fat Leonard" tips the scales at more than 300 pounds and has been trying to cut a deal for himself after authorities tricked him into traveling to San Diego where he was arrested for being the boss of the criminal enterprise. Sources say the greedy contractor has been "singing like a bird.'
Court papers show that Debord had a special fondness for Asian prostitutes. While the record reveals he accepted cash and luxury hotel stays, it was hookers that the Waynesfield, Ohio native wanted the most.
"I'm double-checking to see if I'll have my security (multiple prostitutes)," Debord e-mailed to a Glenn Marine executive just prior to a port visit to Manila in 2008. He was referring to hookers, whom he reportedly bedded several at the same time.
